Will HBO Adapt The Last of Us Video Game Ending? Latest Updates!

The end of HBO’s The Last of Us is coming up quickly, and a new hint from one of the show’s main stars suggests that it will be controversial.

The highly-talked-about HBO show has been praised week after week for its great story, great acting from Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, and scenes that are true to the game. Because of how well the show did, Season 2 was renewed early.

So far, Season 1 has stayed true to the game, which has led many people to think that it will also end the same way.

The Last of Us Star Talks Up the End of the First Season

Bella Ramsey, who plays Ellie on The Last of Us on HBO, talked to Vogue UK about the last two episodes of the show. Ramsey hinted that the next-to-last episode, which will air this Sunday, is very violent by saying, “It was exhausting to film.”

But the star of Game of Thrones said that those were “some of her favourite days on set:”

“It was… tiring, but those were some of my favourite days on set. That sounds very sadistic, but in a way, I love the scenes that break me the most.

The Last of Us

Vogue then asked Ramsey what she could say to get people excited about the finale. Ramsey said that the last episode of Season 1 will “massively” divide fans:

“It’s going to split people up a lot, a lot.”

The last episode of Season 1 of The Last of Us is only 43 minutes long, according to reports.

In a separate interview with Elle, Ramsey talked about wanting to play Ellie for as long as she can. She said that she would like to do so “forever.”

When talking about Season 2, Ramsey said, “There are no limits to how we can bring Ellie to life on screen.”

“There’s nothing I can’t do. They can make as many games and series as they want, but I’ll still be here flying back to Canada.”

The actress also said that she had already seen gameplay from The Last of Us Part II, in which Ellie is older and more violent.

How Does Part 1 of “The Last of Us” End?

In the game, Joel and Ellie get to the Firefly camp at Salt Lake City’s St. Mary’s Hospital. But Marlene tells Joel that for a vaccine to be made, Ellie has to die. Since Joel can’t let go of Ellie, he kills a lot of Firefly soldiers in the hospital, including Marlene, to save her.

Ellie wakes up again while Joel is driving the car away from the hospital. Ellie asks Joel what happened, as expected, but he lies to her by telling her that her own immunity is not enough to make a cure.

Ellie makes Joel swear that everything he told her was true before she goes back to Jackson, which is Tommy’s town. Joel says, “I swear.”

Will HBO Use the Ending of the Video Game The Last of Us?

Bella Ramsey’s latest comments suggest that HBO’s The Last of Us will probably have the same ending as Naughty Dog’s video game, which could start a lot of conversations. The ending of the game was memorable and made a lot of people think about whether or not Joel was right to save Ellie.

The Last of Us

Since HBO’s The Last of Us has a reputation for showing game-accurate moments, it’s a safe bet that the heartbreaking scene where Joel saves Ellie and then lies to her at the end would be in it. If that’s the case, a lot of fans will probably talk about the ending on social media.

Some fans or people who believe in the “cause” would disagree with that important sequence because it takes away any hope for humanity in the world of The Last of Us. Others would understand what Joel did for Ellie, especially since they had to travel across the country together and were very close.

The Last of Us has been getting a lot of attention online in recent episodes, and it looks like a controversial ending is about to send it back to the top of the trending list.

This Sunday, March 5, at 9 p.m. ET, HBO will show the first new episode of The Last of Us.
